Peaches . . . Yummy!!

I love peaches when they are in season!  They are so naturally sweet and flavorful – perfect for a healthier dessert option.  This recipe is delicious and plenty sweet.  In fact, I cut the sugar in half and it was sweet enough for my taste buds.  I even roasted the peaches without any of the bourbon sauce and topped with the yogurt sauce.   That was delicious with almost no added sugar.

Bourbon-Glazed Peaches with Yogurt

 1 (2-inch) piece vanilla bean, split lengthwise

1 cup plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt

5 ½ tablespoons dark brown sugar, divided

1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided

3 tablespoons bourbon

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

4 firm, ripe peaches, halved and pitted

  1. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean into a medium bowl. Combine seeds, bean, yogurt, 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, and a dash of salt. Let stand for 1 hour; discard bean.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°.
  3. Combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar, remaining dash of salt, bourbon, and vanilla extract in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add peaches; toss gently. Arrange peaches, cut side down, on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Reserve sugar mixture. Bake peaches at 350° for 10 minutes. Turn peach halves over; drizzle cavities with reserved sugar mixture. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until just tender. Serve with yogurt and juices.  Makes 4 servings (Serving size:  2 peach halves with about ¼ cup yogurt).
